With 15 hours of battery life, the Osmo Mobile 2 lasts up to 3x as long as the original, and a new USB port allows you to use the Osmo Mobile 2 as a battery bank for other devices while you're using it. The DJI Ronin-S is a handheld gimbal that is large enough for your common DSLR (and mirrorless of course) video configurations without requiring such a payload capacity of the larger gimbals that are much more expensive.
Flagships like the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 record crisp video at 4K quality, and are also capable still shooters. The Osmo Mobile 2 will start at $129, making it much more affordable than the original model (which started at $299, though you can find it now for closer to $200) as a way to keep your phone shake-free while shooting video.
Videographers can also use the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 intelligent motors to create complex shots such as following subjects in motion, motion timelapses and hyperlapses. It also has an integrated tripod socket at the bottom of its pistol grip, which wasn't possible due to the battery door on the original version. The app also supports live-streaming to YouTube and Facebook.
The Osmo Mobile sold for $199.

Osmo Mobile 2 Osmo Mobile 2 is a smartphone camera stabilizer that captures smooth videos and high-definition panoramas with cinematic movement and incredible ease.
The cresting wave of CES is about to break, and DJI is announcing their new gadgets with a second generation Osmo smartphone stabiliser announced. DJI says they're up to the job of stabilizing even larger cameras like the Canon 5D, in addition to Panasonic's GH series and Sony's Alpha models, and even if they've got lengthy zooms.
The gimbal can be locked down for camera mounting and calibration, so setup is easier than with other devices. A push mode can adjust pan and tilt by hand, with axis locks to make the whole process quicker. As with the Osmo Mobile 2 there's a three-axis gimbal which promises to smooth out shake and judder in both photos and videos. It adds CamAnchor, which sets up multiple shots and lets you toggle between them when shooting a scene. DJI also showed us an early preview of an upcoming Focus Control Center consisting of a focusing dial and a screen, allowing users to really control their entire camera while its mounted on this support system.
The DJI Ronin-S isn't available for purchase yet, but there is a sign up to be notified form on their website, so you can be notified when it becomes available. Pricing is not yet set.
